Happy Father's Day

Despite my lack of blogging this year, I know after this week there is no way I can not post about two of the most wonderful MEN in my life.

 I will start with my fabulous husband.  Those of you who are friends with me on facebook may or may not know that a few weeks ago we announced our newest little blessing - A child who's due date was January 12, 2013.  We were as excited about this child as we have been for all of our children.  Knowing that God has blessed us.  Wednesday I began showing signs of an impending miscarriage, and Friday morning we said goodbye to our youngest child, Mercy.  I can honestly say I have the most wonderful husband - simply perfect for me.  As I rested all day Wednesday and Thursday praying that the Lord would not take our child, JA took care of our other children and kept them busy so I could rest.  Even after we knew Mercy was gone, he has gone out of his way to make sure that I had everything I needed, and that I was doing okay emotionally.  I love my wonderful husband! 
Next, I have a fantastic dad.  He's crazy and bizarre at times, but despite all his teasing and jest, I've always known he loves me.  Dad, thank you for raising me to fear God and to trust God in all things.  Through the example you and mom have given me, I have learned to know that God is GOOD in all things, and that God has only the best planned for our lives, even if that means only knowing Mercy for a few short weeks.  Thank you for your support and prayers this week.  I love you, and I'm sorry I didn't get you a Father's Day card this year (well, I probably have neglected more years than I have remembered).  You deserve so much more than a simple blog post.Thank you Daddy!
